Mesker Buildings, iron facades, circa late 1800’s, early 1900. Over the years, the natural and built environment of McHenry County has changed from its rural origins. “Forgotten McHenry County” documents remnants of our past, be it ghost ads on buildings, addresses on transoms, post offices no longer in existence, slaughterhouses, distilleries, outside cellar doors and even corncribs & outhouses.
This section will continue to grow as we take more pictures. If you would like to submit a photo, please it send to firstname.lastname@example.org along with its address and info. Our intention is cover all 17 townships of McHenry County.
